We really appreciate your generosity, but as two stable, working adults who have lived together for 3 years, we really have everything we need and the pleasure of your company at our wedding is more than enough. In lieu of gifts you are welcome to donate to Stand By Me - a children's charity based in Hornchurch that has rescued over 10,000 children in 11 countries.
Stand by Me rescue children then do whatever it takes to provide the care, love and attention they need to thrive. Shan State lies in the west of Burma. It is troubled by war, conflict, persecution, poverty and the trafficking of children. To meet the needs of many orphaned and abandoned children living with no means of support, Stand by Me is building two children’s homes providing love, care and a family for vulnerable children.
Our children’s homes are just like any family home should be – comfortable, safe and filled with love. Donations in lieu of Rosie and Joe’s wedding will provide night time packs for children cared for at the Shan State Homes. The pack includes a mosquito net, pillow and blanket, giving each child everything they need for a comfortable night’s sleep.
